RUMOR8 ABOUT LITIGATING
Thnrft hav been rumors of late
ihnt iiH!itlnn to defeat tho Greator
Salem charter would be undertaken.
Theea statements have heen mnue

W. H. Holmes was orlglnslly men
tioned as the nttorno who Would
bring the suit that would demolish
the charter. But lie assures the ed
itor of this' paper that he knows
nothing of the proposed litigation
and Is not engaged in tho rase.
Judge Lord, who was justice of tho
supreme court, governor and minis
ter to Argentine, has boon mentioned
as bringing tho sulL
Ito tells Tho Journal editor such Is
not the case; that thoro Is nothing to
It, nnd ho hopes the matter will not
bo brought up,
Thci otonle will l) grntlflcd to
learn that such nblo Jurists as W.
TT TTnlrnaa nnil W P Inril rAtirrv
sentlng opposite political parties, aro
not ongnged In bringing on expensive
litigation thnt would hamper the de
velopment of the city.
These gentlemen show nn element
of practical common sense In not
fomenting a lawsuit that would tlo up
the city revunues and plungo the
community In debt and Incroase tax
ntlon. The spirit of the ablest and host
lawyers Is not favorable to conten
tions that make against tho oxpretsed
will of- tho community, for If loft to
a voto of Greater 8alera tho chartor
would carry by a largo majority.
Undor theso clrcumstnncos It Is
creditable to tho Intelllgonco of 'our
nblost lawyers that they hosltnto
about Involving tho city In a contro
versy that would accomplish nothing
but stiifo and discord.
Tho Journal has taken pains to
trnoo down alt rumors and finds them
without foundation, and thoro aro rea
sons to hopo nnd bellovo no such
lltlgntlon will over bo attempted.
Tho movement to securo tho now
charter wna started by tho old Citi
zen's council nnd tho Commercial
club, acting In unison.
A commission of flvo members of
the council nnd llvo members of tho
Commercial olub, nil representative
business men, was formed.
This commission held sessions over
a iwriod of several months, during
which tluy publicly Invited cltlieus

THE IBSEN PLAY.
A large audlenco of Salem society
women, many of them members of the
Salem Woman's Club, hoard tho lb
sen play, "Ghosts."
Score came nway shocked to the
center of their being, unablo to get
their breath over the stimulus and ex
citement of "emancipation."
It must be assumed that Ibsen
writes about social conditions in
Northern Europo, where tho dlstb-
luto husband is the rule.
Of course, thoie may bo husbands
as debauched as Avellng In this play,
and climatic differences may bring
tholr secrot sins home to the family.
Hut wo prefer to think society Is n
little butter In tho aggregate than It
is presented as being in tho drama of
tho degenerate. 1
For ourselves, we prefor tho play of
home life, the rural drama, with lots
of love-mnhlng on the front porch,
etc., etc., to "Ghost."
Hut It must 'bo confessed as a
"mOral shocker" and nwnkonor of tho
thlnk-boxes of "goody-goody people,
Ibsen Is a "crackerjack."

Food tnkon Into tho stomach
which, from tho naturo of the food
or the condition of the stomnch, Is
not digested, Is worse than no food at
nil. This Is a truo stntoment as far
as It goos and a great many dyspep
tics go only this far with their rea
soning. They argue with thomsolvos
that because their stomachs do not
do the work glvon them, they must
be given less work; In other words
they must be starved. It would bo
